THIS AFTERNOON: It's cooler with a lot of clouds. There have been a few sprinkles Lubbock and points south, but most locations didn't get measurable rainfall. Downstate there is a severe thunderstorm watch for parts of South Central Texas. And way up to the north there is much colder air in the Dakotas, headed this way by late on Easter. Here is current FOX34 VIPIR Radar:
TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy, low near 44. Wind E 10-18mph.
TOMORROW: Mostly cloudy and cooler, high near 64. Wind E/SE 10-18mph. Storms will probably develop in Eastern New Mexico mid-day into the afternoon. Closer to Lubbock there is a chance for a shower or storm late afternoon into the evening. We'll keep a slight chance for a shower or storm into Saturday morning.
WEEKEND: While there could be some rain early in the day, the dry line will likely mix east of Lubbock by the afternoon. This will bring dry, windy and warm conditions on the Caprock. Farther east of Lubbock a few storms may develop.
Easter Sunday will start fairly quiet, with a lot of sun. We're forecasting a high in the mid 60s, coming early afternoon. The high temp forecast is tricky, because we see a strong cold front headed this way. Fronts are usually a little faster than the computers depict a few days out. It will turn windy and much colder late Sunday.
NEXT WEEK: A freeze is likely Monday and possible Tuesday. Also, there is a slight chance for rain Monday night into Tuesday morning. A few snow flakes could mix in, though whatever type of precipitation it will be...it'll be light. Both Monday and Tuesday should only reach the 50s. The temperature will moderate some by late in the week.
Have a great rest of your day and stay safe. Bobby will have a full update posted here early tomorrow.
